Today is one of those rare days that I don't have to call myself a waiter because I am actually on a television set working as an actor. Uh huh. My favorite show of all time (right after The Brady Bunch and The Facts of Life) called me to work on it today. Today I am acting on 30 Rock. Acting is a funny word though because what I am doing today is basically standing behind the stars and moving my lips and then walking off away from the camera. But the beauty part is there is no tray involved and I don't expect to take any food orders. At lunch time, when the caterers are setting up the spread, I will resist the urge to light the sternos and fold the napkins. Instead, I will get in line behind Jane Krakowski and Alec Baldwin and choose the chicken or the steak and get a piece of pie. Life feels good today. And just think. If I was still working at The Place That Shall Not Be Named, I would have had to turn down this opprtunity. Was I fired? Yeth, yeth, I wath. I am I happy about it? Oh hell yeth.
Sorry this post is so lame, but you know...I'm an actor today.
